The electron injection process is crucial to the performance of a laser wakefield accelerator as a whole. Here we present recent results and scalings for several controlled injection schemes, i.e. ionization-induced injection, shock-front injection and colliding pulse injection. We demonstrate that the combination of ionization-induced injection and shock-front injection permits the reliable generation of quasi-monoenergetic electron beams. Furthermore, shock-front injection and colliding pulse injection can be used simultaneously, leading to tunable, dual-energy electron beams.
